Friday is going to bring some more fixtures from the 9th round of the European Qualifiers. For some nations, these matches could mean qualification for the upcoming European Cup. The 9th and 10th round are the last of the qualification games which means what happens in these last matches will decide the qualification cycle. Below you will find previews for Friday’s matches.
Armenia vs Greece >> click here for live odds
This is probably the best qualification cycle for Armenia and their football squad. They have 10 points and are sitting at the 3rd place of the table even though qualification is pretty much out of their reach. They still have hope; however, first they need to defeat Greece and hope that Finland will also drop points. Greece, on the other hand, have already lost their chance to qualify. As a matter of fact, they lost 2:3 to Armenia even though they played at home. Armenians will be hoping for a similar outcome to the reverse fixture.
Greece is already out of the competition while Armenia have a chance, even though it’s a slim one. For that reason, we are backing a 1X Double Chance outcome for this fixture.
Finland vs Liechtenstein >> click here for live odds
With a win, Finland will guarantee themselves a place in the European Cup. They beat them 0:2 in the reverse fixture so Finland shouldn’t have a lot of trouble getting all 3 points against Liechtenstein. The visitors are clearly the biggest underdogs in this group as they have only 2 points from the 8 matches they have played so far. Liechtenstein has conceded an amazing 25 goals which shows that they are still not ready for this type of competition.
Finland are clear favorites for this fixture and it’s hard to look past them. On top of that, a win against Liechtenstein will see them qualify for the European Cup. For that reason, we are backing a – 2.75 Asian Handicap outcome.
Norway vs Faroe Islands >> click here for live odds
Norway played 3 draws in a row which has seen them almost lose all their chances for qualifying for the European Cup. They need a win against Faroe Islands but they also need Romania and Sweden to play a draw. Faroe Islands, on the other hand, are the outsiders in this group and they already lost to Norway once, even though they played at home.
Norway are absolute favorites for this fixture. Faroe Islands are still not a professional nation when it comes to football. For that reason, we are backing an outcome where the Home Team scores Over 2.5 Goals.
Bosnia & Herzegovina vs Italy >> click here for live odds
Bosnia haven’t really had a good qualification cycle. Losing to Greece in the last round saw their chances of qualification reduced to almost nothing. Now, they have to defeat Italy and also hope that Finland doesn’t win their match. Italy, on the other hand, are definitely finishing 1st on the table which means they could field a rotated squad as they don’t need to win this fixture. All Bosnian’s will hope for a win and they do have high-quality players who can deliver exactly that.
Italy won the reverse fixture 2:1 in front of their own fans. Bosnia now has the home turf advantage and they also need the win to keep their qualification hopes alive. We will be backing a Both Teams to Score outcome for this fixture.
Denmark vs Gibraltar >> click here for live odds
Denmark are very close to securing qualification for the European Cup. If worse comes to play, they are also in the play-offs from the League of Nations which means they are in a great position. Denmark will also qualify instantly if they win against Gibraltar and if Switzerland fails to win their match. Gibraltar are huge underdogs here and Denmark already defeated them 0:6 in the reverse fixture. With home fans on their side, Denmark could score even more against Gibraltar this time around.
Gibraltar are the biggest outsiders in this whole qualification cycle. They are the only squad that has 0 points in the competition. For that reason, we are backing a – 4.75 Asian Handicap outcome.
Romania vs Sweden >> click here for live odds
This could be the most interesting fixture of the day. Romania will lose their chances of qualification if they lose to Sweden while the visitors are surely advancing if they defeat Romania. In the reverse fixture, Sweden won 2:1 in a very narrow match. Romania will be hoping that playing at home will give them the small edge they need to defeat the Scandinavian side. This is a historical chance for Romania and they should try and take advantage of it.
Sweden do have more quality in their squad; however, Romania proved that they are a very good up-and-coming side which will become even better in the future. They also have home turf advantage so anything is possible. That’s why, we will be backing an Over 2.5 Goals outcome.
Spain vs Malta >> click here for live odds
The former World & European Champions have secured their place in the Euro 2020 since October. They need just a point in the last 2 matches to be 100% sure that the 1st place of the group belongs to them. Malta are one of the outsiders of this tournament and they have only 3 points so far in this qualification process. In the reverse fixture, Spain won 0:2 and a very similar outcome is expected to happen on Friday.
Spain are clear favorites for this one even though they don’t actually need anything from the match. Even if they field a highly rotated squad, Spain will still be too much for Malta. For that reason, we are backing the Home Team to score Over 2.5 Goals.
Switzerland vs Georgia >> click here for live odds
Several bad results for Switzerland has seen them fall behind in their qualification group. However, things are not all that bad for the Swiss because they are guaranteed a play-off spot through the League of Nations. Nevertheless, they still have a chance to qualify through the regular way. They need to win their last two matches and hope that Denmark drops points. Georgia had a very good qualification cycle, even though they are still considered huge outsiders. Switzerland defeated them 0:2 in the reverse fixture and something similar is expected to happen on Friday.
It’s hard to look past Switzerland for this fixture. A victory against Georgia will keep them in the running for the 2nd spot of the group. We are backing an Over 2.5 Goals outcome.
